6/16/2008

Well another night has passed. The intensivist seems to want to get a vascular and plastic surgeon involved today, and have them heavily way in on Carol's skin, fingers, and toes. So I'll let you all know on that.

She slept well, and is still stable as far as all her numbers go. They are talking about doing an MRI of the brain, to check for clotting up there, even though everyone is convinced she is functioning well up there becuase she keeps waking up.

Well off to meet the pediatrician with Safiya. She is actually gaining weight, and taking a bottle now, and looking alot like Chloe did when she was born. Carol and I were desperatly hoping for a mellow kid, but I have been informed by the nurses and doctors than she is very opinionated and much like Chloe, if she is not hungry for what she is presented with, she will throw it......

How fantastic to hear how great Safiya seems to be doing! "Throwing things" has got to be a good sign for such a tiny, little beauty!

When you say Carol "keeps waking up," what exactly does that entail? I recall you mentioning previously that the Dr's didn't want her waking because of pain, is this still the case?

Thank you for taking the time to update all of us on the outside wishing to be on the inside, Scott! Really--Thank you!
